To the untrained eye, Audi's 2017 A5 and S5 Coupe series may look eerily familiar to the outgoing models, but they're actually all new - no, they really are.
In a bid to give the all-new A5 Coupe a more distinctive visual identity -and more sex appeal- from the A4 it’s based on, Audi opted for a pair of new headlights with a cleaner shape, instead of the creased-style units and a more curvy bodywork because big coupes should look the part.
The engine range consists of two petrol and three diesel units. Power outputs start from 187hp for the base 2.0-litre petrol and diesel models, followed by a 248hp version of the 2.0-litre petrol engine. Audi also offers a 3.0-litre V6 TDI unit with either 215hp or 268hp. The new S5 Coupe is powered by a new turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine, sending 350hp to all four wheels.
Being the most potent model currently in the range, the new S5 Coupe can sprint from 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in just 4.7 seconds. At the same time the newly developed turbo V6 engine claims to return a combined 32.2mpg US (7.3lt/100km).
